South Park Creators Sued AGAIN For Stealing

Filed under: TV NewsLegal Matters

Sheesh! This is becoming a bad habit.

First, South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker were forced to apologize for copying a spoof of the movie Inception from the CollegeHumor website and now they're being sued for ripping off the viral YouTube phenomenon What What (In the Butt).

Producers of the video, Brownmark Films filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Viacom, claiming that the breach was "willful, intentional, and purposeful, in disregard of an indifferent to the rights of Brownmark." The company is seeking a permanent injunction and maximum statutory damages.

The segment is very similar to Samwell's video, but we still think it's just a parody and could be deemed "fair use."

What do U think? Did Matt and Trey use artistic expression or was it copyright infringement?
